The Guidance You Need When You Are Injured In The Workplace
The injuries that can result in workers’ compensation claims are nearly as diverse as the number of jobs in the United States. If an office worker suffers an aggravation of a pre-existing condition or a construction worker suffers a catastrophic accident, both workers may be entitled to compensation equal to a percentage of their average weekly wages-typically 70 to 80 percent. In addition, there is no limit to medical benefits. For all injuries, an employer must pay for all necessary medical treatment to cover maximum medical improvement.
In addition to comp benefits, if someone other than your employer was responsible for your injuries – for example, if your construction site accident was the result of being struck by a tractor-trailer driven by a subcontractor – you may have the right to sue a third party for additional compensation.
Since 1936, our firm has been fighting for the rights and benefits of injured workers. We are ready to help you do the same.
